Person-directed care is an essential goal for long-term care change agents. Decades of reform have led to some changes. However, there is still work to be done. This session presents the findings of a comparison of environment and practices between a traditional nursing home to a Green House home. The findings elucidate the importance of creating environments, practices and policies, and staffing that are intentionally designed for elders and their care partners. We will conclude by offering best practices that can be applied to any care setting and assist with starting a plan for change with the participants of the session.
- Compare the traditional nursing home (medical model) to Green house (person-directed model
- Evaluate and Discuss gaps in current nursing home models.
- Plan next steps for how to incorporate best practices of person-directed care in care communities.
